Villisca Review, 1 March 1909


The wedding of Mr. Gilbert Larson, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. C. G. Larson of Bethesda, and Miss Ella Hull, daughter of Mrs. Mary Hull, took place at the home of the bride's mother ten miles southwest of Villisca, Wednesday afternoon, February 24th 1909, at three o'clock.  The ceremony was preformed by Rev. C. O. Lund, pastor of the Swedish Lutheran church of Bethesda and was witnessed by almost eighty invited guests, friends, and relatives of the contracting parties. Miss Hilda Swanson, an aunt of the bride, played the wedding march.  Following the ceremony dinner was served in four courses.

Mr. and Mrs. Larson are at present living with Mrs. Larson's mother but expect to make their home in the future on the Nelson brothers farm, now occupied by Melker Peterson, 7 1/2 miles southwest of this city. Both are most estimable young people, were born and reared in the community in which they were married  and have a wide circle of friends who wish them well in life's journey.  Mr. Larson and Miss Hull were school mates together, grew up as neighbors and good friends and now their wedding makes a fitting culmination to a friendship that has been long and sincere.  The review joins in sending best congratulations.
